On today’s show, our guest is Paul Akangah. Paul is a Lecturer and Program Director at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (or NCAT). As we all know, education plays a crucial role in developing the fluid power workforce; the very people who will be driving fluid power technology forward in the future. Every once and a while on Fluid Power Forum, we like to talk with one of NFPA’s education partners and learn about how that future workforce is being shaped. So we invited Paul into our forum to welcome NCAT as a first-year NFPA Power Partner University, and learn how that status is helping his students prepare for the future fluid power industry.
